Who am I?

My photo
An individual, of no great importance, who is unable to the see the natural world as a place for competition, that was until Covid-19 intervened!. I catch fish, watch birds, derive immense pleasure from simply looking at butterflies, moths, bumble-bees, etc - without the need for rules! I am Dylan and this is my blog - if my opinions offend? Don't bother logging on again - simple!

Cheeky chappie

So sorry for the lack of recent blog activity - stuff going on which has to take priority. Been out and about, catching plenty of scamps and ticking a few boxes on the year list. Bumped into Murray Wright, at Oare Marshes, on Bank Holiday Monday and spent a brilliant hour, or so, catching up. Hard to believe it's been seven years since I was last there! Absolutely stunning views of an adult Red Kite, hunting over newly harvested game crop, yesterday, as I took my grandson, Harry, over to see his cousins - nuff sed! Rods out again this afternoon, didn't blank, but I'm reluctant to call my session a success. One fish in five hours is hardly hectic? The highlight was the discovery of a very confiding Common Lizard which happily posed for a few photos.
Very pleased with this result. Taken with a Fuji Finepix S - my Dad had brought it for Mum, just before she passed away,
and it hasn't been used until I picked it up. 14 million pixels, with a wide range of modes/functions, it has
proven to be a very useful addition to my camera collection. Yes, I know it's not cutting edge but neither am I, so
a combination made for eachother?
There's so much going on, at present, that I can only hope my blogging will be possible rather erratically over the coming weeks (months?) I'm certainly not giving up, just other things must take priority during this period of upheaval. Keep the faith. Take care and stay safe - Dyl
